    《星火英语15篇背完六级词汇》教你一种用全新的方法突破六级词汇。

    Iwaited a day before calling

    Dr. Sam to inform him of

    my decision. I had to be sure!

    “Miriam, I think I know

    why you want to go through

    with this pregnancy, but

    are you aware of the risks?”

    “I know my baby will be

    different. I know she may be

    mentally and physically retarded.

    She may have developmental difficulties

    and problems with social acceptance.

    I do recognize that I am

    going to have to amend

    almost every facet of my life.

    I am prepared to do that.

    This is my final gift

    from Paul and I am determined

    to go through with this!”

    “I thought you would feel

    that way. You have my utmost

    admiration and support. I will

    follow your pregnancy carefully

    but I want you to see

    a specialist in birth defects.

    I will refer you to Dr. Brown

    and would like you to make

    an appointment with her

    as soon as possible,” he said.

    I knew then that I had

    made the right choice.

    My pregnancy was not without

    its hardships, from morning sickness

    to swollen ankles, but I had

    no doubts about the decision

    I had made. My parents, when

    I told them what was going

    on with me, expressed their concerns

    but also their confidence

    in my decision and assured me

    they would be there when

    I delivered my baby.

    Paula was born on a bright,

    cloudless, warm Tuesday morning

    in May. I was prepared to

    see a red, wrinkled, squalling infant.

    Instead, I saw very little.

    Because of the risks involved,

    Paula was delivered by Caesarian section.

    The doctors and nurses rushed her

    into an incubatorto assess her

    before I caught a glimpse of her.

    I could see my parents

    on the other side of

    the operating room window, questions

    in their eyes. What was going on?

    The nurses kept me comfortable

    and tried to alleviate my fears

    but half an hour passed before

    our questions were answered.

    My daughter had a severe heart defect.

    It could be corrected through surgery

    but not until she gained

    a little weight and strength.

    I understood in that moment that

    my life had changed forever.

    I demanded to see her immediately,

    and as soon as I did,

    I fell in love. This most

    precious of all gifts was

    going to survive the obstacles

    ahead of her with my help.

    I knew in an instant that

    all my strength,love, and

    monetary resources were at

    her command. Nothing she wanted,

    needed, or even dreamed

    of, would ever be denied.

    The heart surgery to correct

    a flawed valve was a resounding success.

    Fortunately, the common defects

    occurring in a majority

    of Down's syndrome children

    were absent in Paula. She has

    no intestinal malformations, hearing impairment,

    or severe visual problems.

    We are truly blessed.

    My parents adore this exceptional grandchild.

    Their expertise in teaching, nurturing,

    and parenting has been so welcome.

    I always knew they were there

    for me; now they are there for us.

    I am aware of the sympathetic

    looks from strangers who don't know

    or understand the disorder

    afflicting my child. Their pity,

    for what they ascertain as

    my plight, is misplaced but understandable.

    I am sure that I, too,

    felt sorry for parents of what

    I thought of as imperfect children.

    Paula is a delightful child.

    Her physical defects are apparent;

    there is no doubt she is

    different from other children.

    However, she goes to school

    with other children her age;

    she takes longer to learn things

    and has to work harder,

    but she is achieving all

    the milestones of growing children.

    Raising her is a challenge,

    as is the raising of any child.

    It isn't easy and it won't get easier.

    As she grows and develops,

    there will be questions to answer,

    hurdles to cross, and goals

    to reach. Paula is different.

    She is aware that she is.

    It doesn't dismay her. She greets

    each day with a smile on her

    lips and a sparkle in her eye.

    Do I ever have doubts about

    my decision? No! My only regret

    is that Paul isn't here to

    share my joy in our wonderful daughter.
